List of changes, updates, fixes since version 4

Postby JNeck » Sun Apr 25, 2010 6:46 pm

Is there any list which contains all changes, updates and fixes since v4?
This would be very helpful for testing v5.

Thanks in advance!

Install fails

Postby TomCarter » Mon Apr 26, 2010 10:26 am

Hi,

On my machine Vista 32bit, the install fails with the error:

.NET Developer Bundle failed with exit code 0xc0000005

I have only Reflector Pro from the .NET developer bundle installed on the machine.

Is there any other information I can provide you with ?

Jens,

I'll have to do a changelist at some point anyway, so here you are:

- Improved usability throughout
- Made exception reporting available in trials
- Simplified product editions
- Simplified sharing exception reports
- Introduced option to keep IL strictly valid when using control flow obfuscation, which means Mono is still supported
- Improved viewing of inner exceptions and stack frames outside your code in exception reporting
- Support for Silverlight 4 (previous version worked, but had bugs)
- Fixed intermittent bug with string encoding with improved protection on x64
- Added ability to save exception reports as a file after automatic reporting fails in default exception handler
- Prevent a confused deputy attack on strings encoding
- Better handling of renaming assemblies that are merged
- Fixed bugs in pruning related p/Invoke calls
- Major bugs in highest obfuscation level fixed
- Various minor bugs in obfuscation and pruning features fixed
- Removed curly braces from file names

Hi,
nice to hear new release coming.

Is there any chance to support auto-update or at least notification about new build available directly in SA?

You mention about simplified product editions. How old one will be mapped to new variants? Or it is marketing question and I have to wait official announce and upgrade info.

Also I have feature suggestion. It will be nice to have, but maybe hard to make. Resource combining didn't worked when we have 2 separate assemblies with same namespace. It rather architecture problem and refactoring goal for our code than real necessity but sometimes during legacy code support it can be handful.

Thank you in advance.

Sentinel,
SA 4 doesn't have an update notification mechanism, but SA 5 will, so you'll be able to hear about future updates.

The editions have largely been merged, so if you have a support and upgrades contract, you'll be upgraded to whichever edition yours has been merged into. You won't lose any features due to the licensing change if you have a support and upgrades contract.

If you can create a small example of the resource combining problem you've found, I can make sure it's fixed before the release (if you get it to me soon enough). Send it to support at redgate dot com.

Cheers,
Alex

Thank you for quick answer!

Nice to hear all the changes. I have still valid support plan so I think all goes smooth.

I'll forward to you my old conversations with previous support team maybe you can fix it.

Sincerely yours,
Nick Martyshchenko

I think the build expiry message is both early and broken in build 110. It has happened today, and causes a \"FormatException\" message to appear instead.

I will release a new build as soon as I've worked out why this happened and fixed it.

Feature reuests

Postby JNeck » Tue Apr 27, 2010 4:55 pm

Hello Alex,

first let me thank you for posting the change list!

For a while now we have posted the following two feature request for SA (Support case F0027563 - with Chris Allen):
1) option to deactivate automatic detection of non-obfuscateable elements
2) attribute (or any other way) to exclude only enum items from renaming but rename enum itself

Will one or both of them be included in SA v5?

Cheers,
Jens
